Green Market Toronto Review 12 11 17



On Sunday, Toronto's "Green Market", [LINK] the craft cannabis pop up kind, once again rocked our smokey city! I arrived at opening time. Discovered a long line up. No problem! We quickly made our way into the fair.

Sunday's Green Market was held in an easily accessible, downtown, west end, warehouse on Dufferin Street. For obvious reasons, the "secret" locations are only announced on the day of the show. Lots of folks were still arriving hours later, as I left. Truly, a splendid time was guaranteed for all!

Once again, Lisa greeted us at the door. Helped check our tickets and stamp our hand. We signed a disclaimer. Were provided with a handy cannabis safety flier ["Take Care With Cannabis"] containing useful, practical health and safety tips on usage, dosage, effects and the like.


Quite frankly, I did not see any problems or unpleasantness that could even possibly be associated with weed, during my visit. Quite the opposite! Think cannabis "love in" sans the reefer madmen fear mongering of policing tales and b-grade movies!

Instead, excited cannabis shoppers were dazzled with 10,000 sq/ft of top notch, blissful craft, cannabis products. "Made in Canada", they included a vast array of tantalizing new and classic medibles to sample and buy.

Infused baked goodies, snack food, gummies, chocolate, fudge and topicals were all available in ready supply. Some seeds, bud, shatter, vapour pens and e-juice too.


The infused market tune-age kept the party a' thumping courtesy Deejay NDN and other celebrity DJ guests. They were fund raising for Toronto Overdose Prevention Society at Pursuit OSR. [LINK] Even more high times were provided by the yummy, sunny High 5 party grrrrl hosts as they pranced about wishing everybody a merry Christmas! Hi! Hi! High ....!

I spent a few hours wandering the floor, checking out the latest goodies for sale. The producers were on hand to answer any questions one might have. On the whole they were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic on educating us about their wares. Never did I experience any uncomfortable hard sell tactics or undue pressure to buy this or that! I left very satisfied and a lot better informed with the many happy purchases that I scored.

As you might know, Oh Cannabis is an indie, non profit, activist blog for medical cannabis users, where recreational aficionados are also aways welcome too. I do not make a red cent off any of my reviews. Free samples are always appreciated, for testing purposes, but my opinions are not for sale. I will always shoot straight from the hip.

With that in mind, here are some of my favourite goodies from the Sunday show, that still have me flying high. The list is hardly comprehensive. Nor was I asked for any reviews. The fine weed products highlighted below simply have me happily tripping along my merry Christmas way as a cannabist -perhaps you too!

My Best Of .....



Sofa King Good Bakery: The king's Honey Roasted Peanut Butter is made from a medical grade distillate with 400 msg THC and 140 msg CBD's. [$25 Cdn] Likewise their Strawberry Fields Forever Jam. [$25] OK Ok! I'm still just a big kid! Wake y Bake it on toast come Christmas day! Brunch? Or anytime? Howzabout an infused peanut butter and jam sandwich? What high times fun! Lotsa fun! And I do mean fun! Lots and lots and lots and ....... Well, you get it! Plus all natural ingredients are used, hand picked fresh strawberries too!

Two thumbs up are also due for Sofa King's Cosmic Pretzels; 100 mgs THC, 35 mg CBD's a pack! [$10].  They were perfect for watching the Walking Dead later on Sunday night! Yup! These TV bite sized treats will certainly leave you feeling like a zombie but not dead from the neck up, nor downwards for that matter too. On a more seasonal note, they'll turn on yer Christmas lights and keep them flashing! Deck ye halls! Fa la la la ..... er .....

I'm happy to recommend Sofa Kings award winning line of fresh baked goods, cereal bars, chocolates and sweet jams. They have consistently proven to be among my personal favourites at the Karma Cup and past green market shows. "Treat yourself and your pain", as their motto goes. Go for it! Sofa King's tasty wares are readily available in the Greater Toronto Area [GTA] and by mail order, with more info @ [LINK]



High Society Supper Club: Owner/ Executive Chef Reena Rampersad to the rescue! I recall bemoaning the lack of high quality fast food snacks at the vendor trucks outside the Queens Park Green Market last May. Marc Emery, our "Prince o' Pot" had just introduced us, as he told me about High Society's fab Supper Club 420 dinner parties. Well, Reena was on hand Sunday with a batch of killer pakora's to handily fit the green market snack bill. I dipped them in High Society's home made, infused hot and mango sauces! Whoa! Bought a big jar of the hot [$40] and am now putting it on everything that needs a lil' old kick -at 25 mgs THC per tablespoon, lotsa tasty uses! Am looking very forward to reviewing a High Society dinner for you in the coming daze ahead! Stay tuned! Meanwhile, check High Society out @ [LINK]

Other



Abie Roach and Toronto's Kensington Market Hotbox Cafe crew were out in force. Just in time for Christmas, with lotsa trez kool "stocking stuffer" paraphernalia and pothead gift baskets too! We await with baited breath to find out if the Hotbox and our other lounges will still be allowed in Ontario under legalization come next year. Could be tense! Find out more @ [LINK]



East Coast Collective Rockstar Shatter: Although the Toronto Green Market is not really a bud or concentrate show, there are some free dabs and great deals to be had. I'm very excited to have scored a gram of the Collectives new "Rockstar" PHO Blend shatter [$40], which has left me .... well ... sh sh sh shattered! @ [LINK]



Weedlocka: was out to introduce their all zero-odor Geerbbox weed case for travellers. [$10]. Apparently even police dogs won't be able to smell your stash. Another happy shopper confirmed for me that it's true. Could save our med pot users a whole lot of embarrassment, hassles and grief while in transit in our crazy, mixed up legalized/ non legalized world @ [LINK]
